Additional Concepts The first case, called the clas- sical approach, covers the bipolar transistor before the MOS transistor. Chapter 1 presents an introduction to the crystal structure of solids, leading to the ideal single-crystal semiconductor material.

Chapter 5: Bipolar Junction Transistors

A few other special topics may be briefly considered near the end of the semester. He received his Ph. There are a few references and general discussions about processing techniques such as diffusion and ion implantation, but only where the results of this processing have direct im- pact on device characteristics.

He is still a part-time instructor in the department. Once the physics of the pn junc- tion is developed, the chapters dealing with the three basic transistors may be covered in any order-these chapters are written so as not to depend on one another.

All of these components are vital to the understanding of both the operation of present day devices and any future development in the field.

Chapter 4 Bibliography

Although many electrical engineering students are devics comfortable building electronic cir- cuits or writing computer programs than studying the underlying principles of semi- conductor devices, the material presented here is vital to an understanding of the limitations of electronic devices, such as the microprocessor.


Slightly less than half of the semester is devoted to annd first six chapters; the remain- der of the semester is devoted to the pn junction, thc bipolar transistor. I Qualitative Characteristics 9. The second method of presentation listed, called the nonclassical approach, dis- cusses the MOS transistor before the bipolar transistor.

He has published many papers and is the author of Electronic Circuit Analysis and Design, 2nd edition.

Semiconductor physics and devices: John Wannemacher Project manager: Jones Senior developmental editor: ISBN acid-free paper I. Although this coverage is more ex- tensive, the author has found that once the basic introductory and material physics have been thoroughly covered.

Chapters 2 and 3 introduce quantum mechanics and the quantum theory of solids, which together provide the necessary basic physics.

The reader must keep in mind that, although some sections may be skipped without loss of continuity, many instructors will choose to cover these topics. Joyce Waiters Production supervisor: In order to gain this understanding, it is essential to have a thorough knowledge of the physics of physis semiconductor material. I Qualitative Description I15 4. Neamen is a professor emerltus in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of New Mexico where he taught for more than 25 years.

The goal of this book is to bring together quantum me- chanics, the quantum theory of solids, semiconductor material physics. Sections in each chapter that can be skipped without loss of continuity are identified by an asterisk in both the table of contents and in the chapter itself.

The remaining topics must be left devicds a second- semester course or for further study by the reader. David W Hash Cover designer: This constant review is especially important in the first five chapters, dealing with basic physics. The fact that sec- tions are marked with an asterisk does not minimize the importance of these subjects. Two advantages to this ap- proach are that the MOS transistor will not get shortchanged d.a.nemaen terms of time devoted to the topic and, since a “real device” is discussed earlier in the semester, the reader may have more motivation to continue studying thih course material.

Metal-semiconductorjunctions, both rectifying and nonrectifying. The prerequisites for un- derstanding the material are college mathematics.

Unfortunately, because of time constraints, every topic in evcry chapter cannot be covered in a one-semester course. The physics of the basic semiconductor devices is developed in Chapters 7 through
